Tired of the cooler temperatures? You're in luck

It’s cold again.

“Our wind chill in Atlanta makes it feel like it’s freezing,” Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said early Friday. “So you need to bundle up.”

Currently, the temperature is 39 degrees in Atlanta, but it feels like it is 35.

Atlanta isn’t expected to get out of the 40s. 

“We are going to keep temperatures colder today because of that cold air settling in here,” Minton said.

While mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast, there might be some sunshine. 

The warming trend, however, is not set to start until Saturday, Minton said. Highs are expected to reach 54 Saturday, 58 Sunday and 63 Monday.

“A strong disturbance develops over the weekend,” Minton said. 

And that could bring rain Sunday evening. There is a 30 percent chance of rain Sunday and a 60 percent chance Monday.

“Thunder is possible Monday,” Minton said.

Family awarded $48 million in lawsuit over child's torture death

A jury awarded $48 million to the family of an 8-year-old girl who was tortured and killed in 2013 in a negligence lawsuit filed against the doctor who treated her, The Chicago Tribune reported.

Jurors deliberated for two hours Wednesday before finding that child-abuse pediatrician Norell Rosado was medically negligent in his treatment of Gizzell Ford, the Tribune reported.

Rosado treated the child for several weeks before she was found strangled, starved and beaten inside her grandmother’s Chicago apartment. 

Helen Ford, the girl’s paternal grandmother, is serving a life sentence for the slaying, the Tribune reported. The girl’s father also was charged, but died in jail in August 2014 while awaiting trial, WLS reported.

Rosado denied the allegations in the lawsuit, testifying at trial that he only found "nonspecific" and "non-suspicious" abrasions on the child.

“We just wanted justice for Gizzell, and in our eyes we got it,” said the child’s mother, Sandra Mercado. “I just hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

The lawsuit filed by the girl’s family accused Rosado of failing to immediately alert authorities to possible signs of abuse, failing to ask basic questions about the injuries he uncovered in an exam and failing to properly document his findings, the Tribune reported. He examined Gizzell as part of a molestation investigation initiated by the Fords against her mother’s boyfriend.

Uber driver in Georgia accused of raping 16-year-old girl

NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) - Detectives outside Atlanta are investigating an alleged rape case involving a 16-year-old girl and an Uber driver.

Gwinnett County police spokeswoman Michele Pihera says the incident occurred early Monday in Gwinnett County.

Officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in unincorporated Tucker where they found an intoxicated 16-year-old girl, who said she was sexually assaulted by the Uber driver. Her pants were around her ankles when she was found.

Police say the teenager had been at an area bar drinking with friends, who called Uber to get her home. The officers obtained identifying information on the driver and vehicle information and Thursday arrested 58-year-old Abdoulie Jagne, of College Park, on a charge of rape. It was unknown if he has an attorney.

Uber told news outlets he'd been driving for them for two months.
